Exactly!!! Yes every person should know how, but imo not with Krav Maga, its an extremely offensive fighting style, not so much defensive...

But yet again, people think different in different parts of the world, is Kung Fu not intially part of the chinese school cirriculum?? That too is a fighting style used by warriors of the middle ages smile

I actually would like to know why you think of Krav Maga as more offensive than defensive, given its history. Also, every quality self-defense program in the United States is based in Krav Maga.

@Kathryn, we all do respect, but do you mind showing the source of your statement?

I think youll get a better understanding on the martial art if you watch this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pb2TUDpkln4 youll see what i mean (just watch it in sequence 1 - 7).

PS that isreali chick is stunning laugh

I should have stated that more clearly. There are two major markets that use Krav Maga techniques in the United States--those who take street self-defense programs and physical security experts. Both of these markets are interested primarily in defensive tactics.

It just seems to me that if Krav Maga were so locked into being offensive, it wouldn't have been a Krav Maga expert who invented the Impact program. Arts are adaptable.

What I think Ninpopo was saying was that Krav Maga generally encourages an aggressive response to an attack. Certainly from what I've seen in the couple of classes I attended and clips like the above, certain KM schools do seem to encourage a "kill or be killed" mentaility. As to whether or not this is reflective of the system or is the best philosophy for physical self-protection, well, thats not for me to say.

I also think that the goals of a civilian defending themselves and the goals of a security professional can be quite different. The former may be intent on survival from a physical fight, the latter may want to restrain a person. I certainly wouldn't discount the impact of KM on modern defense programs, but other arts like Brazilian Jiu Jitsu claim to have had an impact on modern defensive training, particularly that of security professionals (law-enforcemnt officers for example). As Matt mentioned, there are other arts that claim to influence modern "self-defence" programs.

Here is example of BJJ training for LEOs:
